Le Grand Hôtel de Tours

Sightseeing in Tours and visiting the Loire Valley

Your stay at the Grand Hotel Tours will introduce you to the Touraine way of life, in a region which provides the setting for the most extraordinary Renaissance chateaux including Chenonceau, Amboise, Chambord, Villandry and its gardens and many others. It also includes some of the most renowned wine appellations: Vouvray, Montlouis, Bourgueil and Chinon.

A cultural town par excellence, Tours is home to a number of museums : the Fine Arts (Beaux Arts) Museum, the Saint Martin Museum,  the "Touraine" wines Museum, the Natural History Museum and the Companionship Museum.

Take a stroll around the town and discover the outstanding architectural heritage and numerous historic monuments from the Roman to the Renaissance eras, as well as the Middle Ages.

"Green tourism" enthusiasts can enjoy a lovely bike ride on the 'Loire a velo' between Amboise, Tours and Villandry.  Discover every aspect of the Loire Valley and visit the terrifying caves in Savonnières, the fossiles and stones at Luynes and the wine cellars in the Loire.
